National Communications and Biennial Reports to the Climate Convention

Parties to the UNFCCC must submit periodic national reports on the steps they are taking to implement the Convention. National Communications that are submitted every 4 years contain the information elements as required by the Convention and include additional information related to the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol.

The new Biennial Report generates concise table format data on the quantified economy-wide emission reduction targets and the progress in achieving the targets. The content of the Biennial Report was agreed in the Conference of the Parties held in Durban in 2011.
